Red Bull Sound Select is back, this time bringing Spanish indie-rock quartet HINDS to the Empty Bottle stage for the first time. Formed in 2011, they were originally named 'Deer,' but were formed to change their name in 2014. They decided on name to HINDS, which means 'female deer.' Their first album, Leave Me Alone, released on Burger Records in 2016, was praised by Pitchfork "a record of human contradictions, the admissions of vulnerability, and the realization that these things are beautiful."
Direct support tonight comes from THICK BUSINESS, a four-piece from Boise, Idaho. These sweet tarts throw an "introspective dance party for trippy sad sacks and party goers alike." Opening is Chicago's DEHD (formally known as DREAM EAGLE HEAVY DREAMS). We have the amazing ERIC McGRADY behind the kit, with JASON BALLA (NE-HI/EARRING), and SUPERMAGICAL's EMILY KEMPF completing the trifecta of awesome-sauce. Always a dang pleasure to have these cats on our stage.
